New Bedford Family Law | Attorney Sandra Saunders:

I represent clients in contested and uncontested divorce matters. Whenever possible, I prefer to help my clients resolve their divorce disputes through mediation rather than through litigation. In almost every case, this approach proves to be less costly and stressful, more discreet and amicable, and it allows the parties to retain a much greater degree of control over the process and the outcome. Most of the time, we are able to reach satisfactory resolutions to some of the most contested divorce issues:

  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Spousal support/alimony
  • Division of assets

For various reasons, some divorce cases do not lend themselves to the amicable approach of mediation. In these cases, I use my experience as a former assistant district attorney — prosecuting criminal cases — to litigate zealously on my clients’ behalf.

Fall River Real Estate and Business Law | Attorney Chris Saunders:

I represent individuals and businesses in a range of real estate matters, including:

  • Real estate closings
  • Negotiating purchase and sales
  • Zoning and land use
  • Municipal law and permitting

I also work with startup businesses, assisting them with entity selection, initial filing and organization, contract negotiation, drafting and review, employee relations, compliance, best practices and other matters.

In all of my real estate and business representation, I focus on being straight with my clients. I think people want and need an attorney who will give them the truth and help them understand the various options available to them. I pride myself in giving my clients the straight answers that they need.
